I cut my first successful BluRay discs earlier in the year, and I've taken a number of months off to dedicate time to new cameras, final workflow, etc. I've kept an eye on the forum, but haven't been cutting discs.
I got a chance to jump back into things this weekend - it went quickly, and was 'eventually' successful.
I'd like to update my machines with the most current and recommended versions of the program...
I have DVDitHD on my main Edius SP editor (no BluRay burner, but all of the files/Raids, editing programs, etc), and on a Sony AR290 laptop with a BluRay burner.
I tried burning a 'Volume' on the Edius machine that had the final project files - worked fine. Then I put those volume files on a USB drive and tried cutting a TDK BD-RE disc from that volume on my Vaio machine/burner. Unfortunately, the disc would not play on either of my PS3's - which I've now updated to firmware version 1.93 (most current). I believe the disc did not have the 'Certificates' folder - not sure why not, and not sure if that was a/the problem, etc.
However, if I rebuild the project on the Sony Vaio from scratch, and burn straight to the disc from the 'current project', the disc plays fine on both PS3's...
The program version on the Edius tower is 6.3 630B91A. The program version on the Vaio is 6.3 631B04A. I'm assuming that I installed a recommended beta back in the day on the Vaio, but not on the Edius machine - and now, perhaps that is creating a problem when trying to cut & burn volumes between the machines(?). BTW, I have the PS3 patch applied on both.
Just wondering if anyone has any new versions or 'final betas' that I should download and put on these machines for use. I have shot a lot of HD this year, and I'd like to get back into the swing of things, and start recommending it for clients - at least those who have PS3's - or other trusted firmware players.
Please let me know what versions you recommend, and how I should go about updating my programs. Many thanks very much!
